    If you turn upside down the coin that appears as a flower, it now appears as a figure standing upright with its arms outstretched.

    Vince,
    By the way, the original name of Pella was Bounomos ("Grazing Ox"), and is alluded to and shown on some of the coins from the city with the grazing bull (ox)--like yours.

    Don, I think my coin is not Pellas but Tessaloniko. I found this one. Macedonia, Thessalonica, AE18mm, 158-149 BC.

    Obverse.Helmeted head of Athena right

    Reverse. QESSALO-NIKH above and beneath bull butting right or grazing right

    You can notice the written under the bull : NIKH

    Your probably closer than mine.
    Here's another with the NIAKH, but misattributed to a horse grazing right:
    Thessalonica, Macedonia, AE19. 187-31 BC. Head of Athena right / QESSALONIKH, horse grazing right.

    I find it interesting that Pella was once the port city on the Thermaic Gulf (on the North Aegean Sea), connected to the Gulf by an inlet--which eventually silted up leaving Pella landlocked. The A-L-A National Park occupies the silted up area today and Thessalonia now is the port city on that gulf.

    I was closer but you nailed it. They look identical. Both have four lines in front of the helmet. The cow and the written identical too. Great!

    The "lady standing" coin is,I believe, a Dephic Amphictyonic League CoinAncient to Medieval (And Slightly Later) History - Rare Delphic Amphictyonic League Coin This is one...



    And another:
    https://www.numisbids.com/n.php?p=lot&sid=1292&lot=29




    Note that each example has the Greek letters in the same sequence as your coin; namely, Alpha, Mu, Phi, Iota.
    I haven't found the exact coin but maybe you or another member may nail this one.
